Gin Advent Calendars Reviewed by Honest Laura
Everyone knows that the best thing about the Christmas period when you’re a kid is excitedly opening up the door of your advent calendar every day to reveal a new chocolate or treat, and the best thing about Christmas when you’re an adult is being able to guiltlessly enjoy a drink or two with your family and friends to celebrate the season, so why not combine the two this year with an advent calendar that solely contains gin?
The Ultimate Gin Advent Calendar
The Little Gin Box Company – £1,350
One for the real gin lovers, this is the most expensive gin advent calendar in Britain, but also the best value! Containing 25 full size bottles of gin, your gin collection will be complete in time for Christmas Day. With UK craft gins such as Pinkster, Silent Pool, Tarquins, Salcombe, 6 O’Clock and Barbican Botanist, each bottle is hidden behind a door in a custom-made wooden box designed and adorned with one of your choice of 7 designs.
Now if this price tag is a tad too hefty, you can get an £80 version of the calendar that houses 25 25ml measures of the gins, or check out one of the other options below.
Gin Advent Calendar
The Pip Stop – £99
A twist on the now traditional gin advent calendar, The Pip Stop’s version offers a full-size 70cl bottle of Lakes Gin, followed by a different type of tonic to drink with it every single day.
Edinburgh Gin Advent Calendar
John Lewis – £100
With 25 mini 25cl bottles of Edinburgh Gin, you can sample all sorts of delightful flavours in the build-up to the big day, such as pine, lavender, citrus and soft spice.
Gin Foundry – £120
Taking a look at the best gins the UK has to offer, this year’s Ginvent Calendar even features a gin made with real Christmas trees. How festive!
